for the republican presidential candidate mitt romney in the election, presidential election polling this past month conservatives decided these polls showing an american electorate that is choosing president obama over mitt romney, these polls made them feel so uncomfortable they decided to develop a new fantasy electorate that they would poll in theory and their fantasy electorate which is not the real electorate would give them a much more comforting list of results in terms of their fake polls. it was the same dynamic at work when they invented conserve-a-pedia. something you read about the world on wikipedia, if it makes you uncomfortable as a conservative, conserve-a-pedia is guaranteed to only contain information that makes you feel okay. if you are discomfited by the idea the human species is a result of millenia of evolution for example conserve-a-pedia has you covered. don't worry. not only has conserve-a-pedia been debunked by the obvious fact that humans and dinosaurs co-existed, but in fact according to conserve-a-pedia dinosaurs are actually still here. dinosaurs have b

guiding principal of countless ceos from general election to google. well the republicans may need a knew principal. remember these numbers? 42 million versus 24 million. those numbers are from a bloomberg study showing over the last 50 years, democrats created nearly twice as many jobs as republicans did. that is significant data. those are some cold hard facts. well today, that data got stronger. the unemployment rate dropped to 7.8%, which is the lowest since the president first took office. sure, i know. we need to do better, but the data is the data. progress is being made. the president's strategies are moving us in the right direction. that is the data, those are the facts. but republicans don't like those facts, so they are either undermining the recovery as mitt romney did today when he said this. >> romney: the reason it has come down this year is primarily due to the fact more and more people have just stopped looking for work. but if the same share of people were participating in the work force today as when the president got elected our unemployment would be around 11%.

help elect democrats. the biggest outside groups are the labor unions. when karl rove looked at the 2010 elections, they realize that, while big labor, which spent $400 million helping elect president obama and the democrats in 2008, there was no corollary to that that existed on the right to be able to spend large amounts of money on behalf of the republican candidates for the house and senate. we set a goal of $50 million in 2010 and i was working a crossroads when president obama attacked crossroads could he said we were taking illegally from china. as soon as he said that come within 10 days, which saw an uptick in crossroads. the reason for that was because president obama, by attacking crossroads, identified as as the biggest risk to his existence. and the rest is history. that is kind of were the center- right groups are. in fact, in 2010, people think of crossroads as being the biggest spenders in the 2010 election. we were not. the biggest expenditures were from the american federation of states county and municipal employees. the second biggest spending group was the use c
